Grants of up to $5,000 to Idaho elementary schools to increase exposure of students to literature. Funding is intended to support the purchase of age-appropriate books for pre-K through first grade children that will be available for students to take home during the school year. The aim of the program is to promote literacy skills and improve reading levels for young children.
Elementary school libraries play a vital role in ensuring Idaho children develop strong literacy skills, starting in the earliest grades. Unfortunately, many Idaho elementary schools haven’t had the resources to allow children in developmental preschool programs, kindergarten, and even first grade to check out books to take home. The Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICfL) is offering mini-grants to schools to help increase access to books.
